    I just had a very nice but brief chat with Supreem on the Arena Test Center. I asked him if he can set up another test shard to allow copying of chars from Siege/Mugen. He said he would think about it. So keep your fingers crossed and if you have characters on other shards you can copy to the Arena Test Center, maybe ask him yourself *nicely* if he'll consider it.

    He told me that the current Arena Test Center just won't accommodate copying from Siege/Mugen because the ruleset makes the character data incompatible.

    Nah, I think more people will try it if it could be done somewhere where cheats could be monitored.

    or the one near um i think wrong dungeon?

    both of which never get used. Also i like how they added the little note of siege ruleset cant be implemented into the test center lol

    Does this mean siege wont be seeing the arena thingy?

    I guess if we got it we could have crafter wars?

    no the res location is in the arena and your sent out of the arena alive, after the fight
    only way in arena is to accept a duel
    it would be better if they gave you full life when you get sent out of the arena that way warring guild cant res kill

    There is a huge difference between what they are working on right now with this arena thing and what we currently have. I surely don't believe it will be for everyone, but it sounds like it might be a place for pvpers to duel that might get used. The write-up of what they have going on the test shard is here:

    NewTest Center - Arena Test | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online

    I think that a few Siege players will enjoy it and use it.

    I have tested things before in UO and given feedback, and then seen the feedback get listened to and applied in the game - now is your chance to do the same if you are a pvper.

    Meh I still am a firmer believer in player run duel pits and hosted fight nights by players, than some prefab pre built new arenas or old ones that they put up.

    The arena in Ocllo for example is cool, there are the other 2 one by dungeon one over by fairgrounds. Only trouble with those particular public ones is whomever may be dueling or hosting some event in those have no control over the *arena* or house.

    Player run arenas DO have at least some player run control, ie they can shoosh a person out that is creating issues, let em back in some other time or have folks there to RES gate to Chaos for the duelist that died etc. etc.
    And of course nothing will keep out thieves, but in a player run established arena, if the guild or owner wanted to they could oust a thief too..if they wished to do so. . or not to keep it all entertaining.

    But whatever they build, unless they do something really spiffy, what good are duels per say if ya got no audiences either. . name on some record big deal ~!!@! Not as much fun as seeing who wtfpwned today ..whom may lose next week or next !

    We had lots of player run *fight nights* on Siege once..in the Shire, in Wintermoor, in TNT arena, in Rev arena and other ones for gp winnings too and just for plain old one on ones that EVERY one could watch if they wished to go to *fight nights* as spectators.

    To me it's cooler to be the winner overall in front of everyone... :) at some player run fight nights in a player created DUEL pit arena fight nite hosting party held weekly or monthly...like once we used to have HERE.

    *sigh* but now we do not have the pvpers as much either.

    And nooooo I will NOT sign up for crafter fights ...I still gotta hang my head in shame cuz Miss Tea wtfpwnd my Miranda in a KSS fight nite of crafters vs. crafters !! I LOST TO MISS TEA ............GAH !! THE SHAME !!:mf_prop::stir:
